The students will know the artistic production of Claude Monet, an emblematic figure, to explain Impressionism. This artistic movement will be geographically and chronologically located, as well as related to the birth of photography and the influence of Japanese prints. The knowledge of the stylistic innovations learned through the exemplary artworks of Monet will be decisive for the realization of PowerPoint presentations about other exponents of Impressionism by the students. They will learn to understand the similarities and differences through exponents of the artistic movement, allowing the development of knowledge and skills.
